A Can Am Traco Olds. I wonder if Traco did their magic in an aluminum Oldsmobile 215 V8? Chaparral did before running the Can Am aluminum Chevy Mk IV 494s or whatever they were.

The Hoss's car was Boss!

2010 Motor Trend article-

"We saw our first Z-16, a yellow beauty back in February, 1965, when the author was employed at Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago. It was built for press and VIP reviews. Dan Blocker of Bonanza TV show fame bought it the very next day. Chevrolet sent a fleet of prototype cars, pickups and semi-trucks to Nickey in order to hold a special weekend Bonanza festival. Select staff worked this weekend, playing host to the public and midwest media."
